Being available on the open market for the first time in over 30 years is this handsome double fronted Victorian town house which dates from the mid 1870s. Occupying an idyllic and very special location, being on a private gated road within a designated conservation area, 'The Red House' has been sympathetically and lovingly restored by the present owners who with reluctance offer this beautiful family home for sale. Being probably almost unique in Guisborough, 'The Red House' offers graciously proportioned accommodation which possesses a lovely aura throughout, only apparent upon inspection. Centred around a gracious entrance hall, staircase and landing, there are two splendid bay fronted reception rooms which along with the two principal bedrooms enjoy a glorious southerly aspect across the trees of the Albion Terrace conservation area - a very special 'green lung' within the heart of Guisborough. There is a quite superb conservatory/garden room and a lovely spacious farmhouse style kitchen - very much the 'heart of the house'. To the rear of the house is a lovely walled garden which affords almost complete privacy and seclusion and the historic Market Place and Westgate, with their range of shopping facilities and amenities, is literally within a few minutes walk. Equally close by are the Parish Church, Priory ruins and the lovely Applegarth walk. Few period properties in Guisborough offer the almost unique combination of an old house in a central location yet standing in gardens which afford almost complete privacy - the sale of 'The Red House' must therefore represent one of the most exciting opportunities to have arisen within the Guisborough property market for some time - we therefore anticipate a good deal of interest and early inspection is advised.
